A JUDO club in Droitwich had a visit recently from some members from its German twin town.

Kodokan Judo met with Carl Eschenauer, the senior coach from the Bad Ems Judo Club, when he visited Droitwich this summer as part of a visit by the Twinning Association to the town, staying on to introduce himself to like-minded Judo teams in the town.

As part of the visit, more than 50 people took part in a two-hour training event with the club at Droitwich Leisure Centre, with members from Rubery and Bromsgrove Judo Clubs coming along to take part alongside the Kodokan members.

The club spent the afternoon showcasing its talents before a disco and barbecue which was held at the 3rd Droitwich Scout Hut.

A spokesman for Kodokan Judo, said: “The officials and members of Kodokan Judo Droitwich would like to wish a special thanks to Droitwich Spa Leisure Centre for their support by providing the excellent facilities for the session, and Viv and Adam Ware and Ollie Lamb who worked tirelessly to provide a magnificent spread for their guests.”

Kodokan Judo in Droitwich is a not for profit club run by volunteer coaches and officials. Sessions are held at 3rd Droitwich Scout Hut on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and are open to all. For more information, contact Claire Clarke on 07515 650698 or visit kodokanjudodroitwich.org.
